Synopsis: 

Sophie Treadwell established a place for herself in theatre history with the expressionist play, Machinal. Influenced by industrialization, World War I, and first-wave feminism, the play explores a young woman’s struggle to maintain her humanity. Like many people, the main character faces choices regarding work, family, marriage, pregnancy, and the future. Society sets this young woman on a track that finds her defective and leads to her rejection. Or did she bring it on herself?
